Two exhibitions open in Reykjavík today

The visual artists Tumi Magnússon from Iceland and Jennifer Tee from the Netherlands will open their exhibitions in the modern art gallery Safn in downtown Reykjavík today. Their work will be on display until August 26.

Magnússon has two photographs and a photomural on display; his exhibition does not have a specific title. Tee’s exhibition is entitled “Down the Chimney” and refers to a tunnel into a different world, the reality changing into something unknown.

Jennifer Tee (born 1973) is a Dutch-Chinese artist who lives in Amsterdam. She primarily works with installations, involving video, sculptures, photographs and text. The artist often appears in her installations and invites spectators to join her. Her work often features different nationalities and connects the traditions of the Far East with Western traditions.

Tumi Magnússon (born 1957) lives in Copenhagen and is a professor at the painters’ department in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. The artist works with colors and form in an untraditional way, where movement and the merge of colors plays the main part in his paintings.

Magnússon has also worked with photographs of living beings that have been enlarged so much that they look like abstract paintings.
